    react-native-maps-directions npm version

    Directions component for react-native-maps – Draw a route between two coordinates, powered by the Google Maps Directions API



    yarn add react-native-maps-directions

    Basic Usage

    Import MapViewDirections and render it as a child of a MapView component. The mandatory MapViewDirections props are:

    • origin: The coordinate of the origin location
    • destination: The coordinate of the destination location
    • apikey: Your Google Maps API Key (request one here).
    import MapViewDirections from 'react-native-maps-directions';
    const origin = {latitude: 37.3318456, longitude: -122.0296002};
    const destination = {latitude: 37.771707, longitude: -122.4053769};
    const GOOGLE_MAPS_APIKEY = '';
    <MapView initialRegion={}>

    Once the directions in between destination and origin has been fetched, a MapView.Polyline between the two will be drawn.

    Component API


    Prop Type Default Note
    origin LatLng or String The origin location.
    destination LatLng or String The destination location.
    apikey String Your Google Maps API Key (request one here).
    waypoints [LatLng or String] Array of waypoints to use between origin and destination.
    language String "en" The language to use when calculating directions. See here for more info.
    mode String "driving" Which transportation mode to use when calculating directions. Allowed values are "driving", "bicycling", "walking", and "transit". (See here for more info).

    More props

    Since the result rendered on screen is a MapView.Polyline component, all MapView.Polyline props – except for coordinates – are also accepted.

    <MapView initialRegion={}>

    An extra note on origin and destination

    origin and destination can be coordinates in the form of objects with latitude and longitude keys, or coordinates in the form of a string in the format 'latitude,longitude'.

    <MapViewDirections origin={{ latitude: 37.3317876, longitude: -122.0054812 }} … />
    <MapViewDirections origin="37.3317876,-122.0054812" … />

    Additionally origin and destination can also be location names. The Google Directions API will translate those to coordinates for you.

    <MapViewDirections origin="Apple Park Visitor Center, Cupertino, CA, USA" … />

    Don't forget to tweak the language prop when using localized location names.


    Event Name Returns Notes
    onReady { distance: Number, duration: Number, coordinates: [] } Callback that is called when the routing has been calculated.
    onError errorMessage Callback that is called in case the routing has failed.

    Extended Example

    This example will draw a route between AirBnB's Office and Apple's HQ
